character of . Alcesta la : not . on .to
awaken the- widest- sympathy ' and ap

is not so much a mlsanthrop as a man
at right angle with himself." At bot
tom his jiatur lwacm and paaelonate,
with a weakness ( in Its love ' fr . th

nises this weakness-In himself and his
Impotenoe to fight agalnat'lt.- There is
perhaps something tar all this that rW-oalls-
Mollere own r married Ufa With
a wife half his age. r Conjoined to this
trait In hs nature la his fierce and pas
sionate jealousy. Nothing ecu d be more
diametrically opposed than'1 auch quali

I'jself. Above all he ts an egotist, think
ing that the-world 'will-' turn aside to
watch him and that each motion- of bis
will be regarded with " breathles Ad
miration: and wonder." He is th fly on
the wheel of th axle of the .chariot
crying (hit "What a duat I am raising!"
His conduct -i reaard to hla lkw suit
his treatment of CoHmew 4n- the-earlier 4
scenes, are all characterised by this
Idea ' of self-lmpbrtane. . It' Is an un
pleasant, trait that must 'b pat sid by

At bottom "L - Misanthrope" -Is
study : of character. ' Inasmuch as char
acter Oa reflected upon character It be
comes a comedy; but in lta underlying
meanings and its denouraent It Is -any-
tnlng but a comedy. "A character study

termed.. For ; the same care which has
gone, into Its principal role is manifest

A play Ilk this, , brilliant splendid,
full bf keen insight may delight th
Intellectual few; It will not catch-th
popular taste. In the first place, the
character ar too dlffleult to graspln
th aacoad place, ther la too little ap
parent action. Thar Is, In a ward, too
Utu red Mood in It; too lltu fir and
dash. It may bar th beat of Moller
In It - It doe reflect his philosophy, his

him as th deteatar of shams and hy

drawing-room. But it Is something Ilk
"The School for Scandal"., would o
without th screen scene, or "Othello"

Is too much talk and didacticism for th
theatre of today. -It becomes more a'
sermon than a play. ' This Is at least th
modem standpoint. Its literary worth

. Mr. Richard Mansfield has. don many
blta'of acting In bis time which have

consummate artist has received no bat
